Manchester City were knocked out of the Champions League after 2-1 defeat in the second leg at the Etihad and Pep Guardiola blame it on officials 

Lfc rumour
Manchester City took an early lead with Gabriel Jesus scoring in just two minutes to the game. Liverpool came back in the second half with Mohamed Salah chipping it to the net and Roberto firmino sealing it up. 

However City had a chance to make it 2-0 in the first half, Guardiola lost his temper after remonstrating with the fourth official when he saw his side have a Leroy Sane goal disallowed for offside.

Although the 5-1 aggregate score highlighted the difference between the two sides, Guardiola is adamant that there were key turning points such as Salah’s goal in the first leg that killed off City’s chances.

“I said it was a goal when the ball was passed to Leroy Sane. That’s why he sent me off.

“It would have been different to go in 2-0.

“It’s different when Salah’s goal at Anfield is offside.

“It’s different when Gabriel Jesus' goal at Anfield is offside.”

“In this competition the teams are so equal and the influence of refereeing decisions is so important.

“We’ll go again next season. Big congratulations to Liverpool, Hopefully they can represent England well in the semi-final."
